How do you become a more compelling and engaging educator? This workshop will introduce participants to inquiry-based learning with the aim of giving them the tools to make their teaching experiences more engaging, effective and interactive.

Inquiry-based learning (also known as discovery-based learning) is an approach based on learning by doing. Learning takes place when we are involved and have the chance to explore, observe and discover. Educators can use theatre, storytelling, vocal activities and role-plays to create real-life moments in which participants face challenges and have to actively and cooperatively find solutions to overcome obstacles. In other words, creativity and discovery work hand in hand to build experiences that will lead to active learning. In this session, participants will be using dramatic techniques and activities to create new opportunities for discovery and engagement.

This workshop is suitable for both seasoned trainers/educators/instructors and participants who are thinking of becoming trainers/educators/instructors in any field.
